Interesting. Seems Drums and Space would have to be the most played songs (after "tuning" and maybe "take a step back"). What I find hard to believe is how consistant the band made them. I mean really, it's the Grateful Dead after all, yet here you almost always get D/S in the same place. Maybe that's why it became a yawner for a lot of people. It was coming. It was predictable. Everything non- Dead. I do offer 'constructive criticism' to my favorite band on this issue. We needed more first set Drums. We needed more first set Spaces'. We wanted shows that had NO D/S in the eighties(many please). What about Space> Drumz? How about Space>Corrina>Drums>If the shoe fits>Space>Drumz? Allright I'll stop, 'cauz you know what I mean. D/S only sucks because they didn't mix them up or abandon them some nights. I'll admit it, D/S in the eighties defied the Dead rule of 'expect the unexpected'. Think how awesome they would have been if you only got them here or there throughout a tour.

I thought the same thing ! Ok, as they got older , It gave them all a mid-set break ( to rest or be bad ). Your ideas, would still given them break, and freshen up things; the space>drums thing would especially allowed some interesting things . Hornsby has complained what creatures of habit they were .
